Carbon fiber pillar trim

anybody done this? I think it'd look very nice and the price is reasonable.

Nice dogs, hope the new set find their way on to the car w/o incident.
The cool thing about the carbon fiber pillars are that they change their looks from night to day. The weave in the carbon fiber pillars are just plain beautiful.

The chrome trim that is above the pillars and windows that curves from the side mirrors to the rear of the back windows anyone think that is possible to be made in CF? Want to go with the stealth look but I think CF would look better then black.

I like the idea of this mod - can't really see from the pictures how much they sit proud of the window rubber at the top. Would someone be able to take really close up pictures almost parallel to the windows?? I imagine that if these stick on with tape at the back there'll be a gap?!?!

Can you get replacement trim pieces done in CF? Or how much are the OEM gloss ones?

I was going to get mine from Bimmian, too but they were out of stock. I used bimmerfreak.com and they pricematched. There are pics of my car in this thread....http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54899 They do stick out a little but not too bad. If you're really close you can tell that they sit on top of stock pillars, but they look really good from a foot or two away.
